Rickety Bridge Winery Reviews
We were given a cellar tour by Donnavan and then taken through a wine tasting and amazing lunch hosted by Dylan. Both D's happy to part with their amazing knowledge of wine and the creation thereof..... more »
We visited as part of a curated wine tour on the wine tram. The vineyard and estate were lovely and there were some superb wines on offer. The lunch was excellent, definitely recommend a visit more »
Thank you Gary and Dylan! We arrived with no booking in the middle of chaotic wine group tours but they fit us in at the wine bar to give us an amazing wine tasting. After things calmed down, between tour groups, we were able to sit down and have a delicious cheese board with our wine. We ended up buying 4 cases of wine because we had such a good time. Thanks again guys.
We did not actually stay here but spent a lunchtime tasting various wines served by a knowledgeable Rickety Bridge wine ambassador. We also enjoyed a great lunch. A good time had by all.
